Question 5

Discuss the theme of heroism in the play


Here, Candidates were required to bring out Sergius’ unprofessional style of military campaign as a soldier.  Sergius tactlessness, foolhardiness, unprofessionalism and inexperience displayed at Silivinita on the battlefield denied him of his promotion and it resulted to his quitting the army in frustration. Bluntschli represents another kind of hero. One who is forthright, practical minded, pragmatic and possesses military skill. These qualities earn him the love of Raina. Yet there is another act of heroism illustrated by Louka. Her heroism is outstanding as she changes her lower class status through courage and determination by marrying Sergius who has an aristocratic background; etc
Most Candidates attempted the question but performance was fair.
